We're excited to announce that we've been by acquired by WPP in an effort to help them compete with Publicis's Marcel initiative. More details in the comments.
Thoughts on WPP /WPP agencies under Mark Read’s leadership. Now that it’s been almost 2 years..... Changes for better/worse or reshuffling deck chairs?
Best compensation structures (salary/benefits) between WPP, IPG, Publicis, Omnicom shops? Thoughts?
Anybody know what WPP’s maternity/paternity leave policies are? Or if they’re consistent across WPP agencies?
So who else in WPP just watched the Global Town Hall with Mark Read and thought it was weird...? "You're my favorite CEO" "Do you think you need more swag(ger)?"
Can someone ELI5 why Martin Sorrell had to buy a wire baskets & teapots manufacturer in order to create WPP as we know it? Could he have created his own company and then go public?
Two Qs: 1.) How does your agency go about promotions? 2.) What’s your promotion cycle flow...2x a year or 1x a year? Seeing less and less transparency under WPP...
Does anyone know what’s really happening with the alleged WPP hiring freeze? I’m in talks about moving to one of their agencies right now and so far they haven’t mentioned that they can’t hire me.
Calling all fishies at Omnicom, IPG and WPP. What has your experience been under these parent companies?
Ok NY need ur help, got a great senior AD, 5 years experience, some webbys no major hardware, just moved from Chicago @ big WPP agency thinks they’re being lowballed. What’s the average salary?
Totally useless survey: How would you rank IPG, WPP, Publicis, and Omnicom? 1) Omni, 2) IPG, 3) WPP, 4) Publicis
Mark Read announces no more single-use plastics by 2020 across the network. Will this be the initiative that turns WPP around?
I work at a WPP agency. Interviewed at a diff. WPP agency that says they want to hire me but can’t until my HR says I can interview at other network agencies. Risky? Will I be the next lay off?
Has anybody had any recent convos with WPP, I had 3 of their shops contact and get me far enough in the process they owe me a response but all ghosted me after the announcement.
Who can decode what the arrangement is with VW over at WPP? Possible has Tier 2 and Johannes Leonardo has “creative”. That all sounds like a creative ownership/leadership/agreement nightmare.
The idea of a big consultancy such as Accenture or Deloitte coming in with a mammoth bid for WPP is not so far-fetched.
Has anyone in the WPP network been promised a promotion/raise and then suffered through the annual Q4 “cash push” freeze? Did you finally get it in Q1? If so, when? Was it worth the wait?
